Sail Date: Aug 2019

We chose this cruise as it fitted in with our itinerary and we thought the River Elbe would be interesting. We spent 3 days in Prague prior to boarding.

On embarkation we were informed by the purser that the boat would not be going down the Elbe as the water levels were too low and we would instead be going down the canals. We had received no communication from Croisi about this prior to boarding and from there everything went downhill. The canals were boring and there was not much to see. We did still visit the towns as shown on the itinerary but we only did the one tour at the end to Berlin which was quite good.

The cabins were quite reasonable and the decor was nice but it is a very small boat. Entertainment was minimal or non-existent. There were no fitness or recreation areas. There was an open deck upstairs for viewing but there was not much to see.

Cabin Review

Cabin Main deck

The cabin was compact but adequate. There was enough hanging space for two people and storage space. The beds were very comfortable as were the pillows. We had a large window, upstairs they had floor to ceiling windows. The bathroom was well set out and the shower was good.
